What is the difference between PEO and EOR?

An employer of record (EOR) is able to hire employees in other countries on your behalf, while a professional employer organization (PEO) cannot always do that.

If you want to hire a new employee from abroad, but you don’t have a legal entity there, you’ll need to use an EOR service.

If you need help with HR, admin, payroll and such in a country where you already have a business entity, then you’ll need a PEO.

Simply put, a PEO offers the same services as EOR but does not provide legal employment for employees in other countries.
